Everyone has workflows that they work through on a daily basis. Workflows are a part of life and especially important when running an organization successfully. A workflow is a process or a set of steps that you follow to reach a goal. It can be simple or they can be complex. Either way, workflows are important and essential to getting things done in organized and efficient fashion.
All in all, workflows work best when they are actually flowing, no matter how simple or complex. If a workflow stalls or stops, it can make an organization come to a grinding halt. What keeps a workflow from flowing? Here are a few things to think about:
Sound familiar? If it does, you aren't the only one. Lots of companies have issues with slow flow or no flow workflows. Workflows not flowing or flowing slowly wastes time and money and can accumulate into huge problems which can wreck your organization. Now you may be asking: so how do I speed it up? Automation, my friend. Picture this:
If your workflows were flowing efficiently, how much more productive would your organization be?
Your workflows can start flowing successfully by using a great tool called SharePoint! One of the many great things SharePoint does well is online forms, workflow automation, project management, and dashboards. Your organization's workflows can be implemented, to your specifications, in SharePoint. You can also have a special portal or portals for your clients and/or vendors to be able to fill out forms, participate in workflow, and view statuses. These portals can also keep historic data.
As a small, or even a medium sized, company, you may think that getting a tool like SharePoint is be hugely expensive. I'm here to tell you that is a fear of the past. Since the invention of Microsoft clouds, Office 365 and Azure, you can get SharePoint for a fraction of the cost of getting it on premises. If it works better for your organization, you can also decide to break the cost down into a monthly cost, making it a more manageable operational cost as opposed to a capital expense. If your organization gets Office 365, you also get solutions for email, online meetings, Office, and more.
